To SK in CAN

Original post by SK in CAN was place in Our Stories thread:

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>I was diagnosed with Hasymoto Thyroiditis when I was 11 years old, I'm now 31. I don't see my doctor very often, and after reading some of your stories, i have a few questions i hope someone can answer. I've had sever sharp pains in both sholders for years. I've had exrays done, and gone to a specialist, no results. Does this have anything to do with the thyroid? Also, recently, someone mentioned that they thought my eyes were getting bigger. In someone's post here, they said there eyes buldged and then it went away after some medication was given. Is it possible, do you think that mine would go away as well? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Re: To SK in CAN

Welcome SK in CAN. I re-posted your message as a new thread so it would be seen by more people. The Stories thread is really for our histories, not general questions, but no worries.

I'm not sure if the sharp stabbing pains you're experiencing have to do with thyroid. I've always thought it was a normal occurrence. Anyone out there find it unusual to have occasional muscle spasms like this?

In answer to your second question, bulging eyes are one of the potential symptoms of Grave's Disease (hyperthyroidism). People with this condition are typically treated with something to slow their thyroid production to a more normal level. Have you had recent blood tests? If so, what was tested and what were your results (and the listed normal ranges). Hashi's patients have thyroglobulin antibodies, so your doctor is probably monitoring you to make sure you don't become HYPOthyroid.

Feel free to ask specific questions, and we'll be happy to help.<p>[This message has been edited by ArtfulD (edited 12-18-2001).]
